Adoptable pets featured weekly from Animal Friends and Orphans of the Storm!

Are you looking to bring a pet into your home? Local animal shelters are a great place to find a furry companion. So, as part of Furry Tails, I’ll be doing an ongoing feature on adoptable pets from local animal shelters once a week. If you have room in your heart and are looking to bring a lovable ball of fur into your home, maybe one of these guys is meant to be a part of your family!

Animal Friends Pet Profile:
This handsome young guy is Davenport. He is originally from the Sunshine State, but he’s ready to start his new life in the ‘Burgh! Davenport can be a little shy when meeting new people, but once he feels comfortable he is a very friendly and social dog. He enjoys going for long leisurely walks where he can spend some time sniffing around. Davenport loves to play (especially with tennis balls!) but is learning some basic commands as well, like “drop it” and other good canine manners. If you think Davenport is the missing piece to your family, come meet him today!


If you can help, come to Animal Friends at 562 Camp Horne Road, Pittsburgh, Pa., 15237 or call 412-847-7000. For more information on how you can adopt any of the pets at Animal Friends, visit their website here!

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profile:
Sivva was a good mom and loved her kittens. She can be shy, at first. But once you make her acquaintance she is friendly, loves attention, and purrs when you pet her.

She is good with other cats, but is not a fan of being picked up.


BONUS PETS — Daisy & Layla:

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profiles:
Daisy is a sweet, affectionate Beagle. She is middle age, 6- to 7-years-old.

Daisy would be a great companion for someone. If you like to sit at home and watch TV: she loves to snuggle and sleep on the couch. If you like to get out: Daisy would love to join you on walks and car rides. She likes to play with her toys.

Daisy is very housebroken and even rings a bell to go outside! She is on a diet to lose weight. She does not like to share food. For that reason, Daisy needs to be an only dog. She gets her teeth brushed twice a week.

Orphans of the Storm Pet Profiles:
Layla is a beautiful Husky mix. She is a nice dog to walk.

Layla is house-trained and good with kids, but not cats or some dogs. She needs a home experienced with Husky personalities.

Layla needs a lot of exercise. She can be stubborn and does not like left alone.
